Iron, concrete, glass, dust 176 x 113 x 80 inches.
Exhibition “L’invention du désir” by Douglas Gordon, in the Kamel Mennour gallery, with artists Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Pierre Molinier, Edward Ruscha and Gina Pane.
Dust is the very essence of what remains of human life and activity. This dust encapsulated in glass contains all the memory of a place, of someone…
It seems as heavy and charged as a person’s brain before therapy. The reflection of the sculpture in the mirror makes it float in the air, just as dust floats in the air, but the mirror also accentuates the heaviness of the infinitely multiplying content. It’s a work of many readings, beautiful and perfectly chosen for the subject of the exhibition.
